A defenseman for the future; It's "Miracle" Day

Terriers have received a commitment from Aidan Souligny, a 6’2” left-shot defenseman with the CCHL Navan Grads Jr. A. He’s projected to arrive at Agganis Ave. in 2025.

“Aidan is a highly mobile, offensive-minded defenseman,” says Navan GM & Head Coach Marty Abrams. “He makes an excellent first pass, possesses a heavy shot from the point and the ability to play in all situations.

An Ottawa native, he spent two seasons with the Ottawa Junior ’67s, winning a league championship in 2019-20. Last year, Souligny moved up to the Navan Grads U18 AAA in Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) U18 while still a 15 year-old. He had a 2-19-21 scoring line in 31 games and earned first runner-up for the league’s 2021-22 Top Defenseman Award.

A 2006 birthdate who turned 17 last month, Souligny has played 12 games for Navan’s Jr. A club, recording a pair of assists. He also suited up for the New Jersey Rockets 16U AAA club in two Northeast Pack games.

Souligny was drafted in the seventh round of the 2022 OHL draft by the Oshawa General. He's the third defenseman to commit to BU in recent months following Hunter Hady and Tom Willander, both in the 2023 class.
